"...set your hearts on things above, where Christ is..." - Colossians 3:1

The Open Door

The Open Door has been a vital part of Portadown Baptist Church’s outreach in the Brownstown area and beyond since the early nineties.  We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to a friendly setting, where we like to get to know people as they join with us. 

We aim to make The Open Door an enjoyable meeting, commencing with communal singing.  We are privileged to have good visiting Singers, Gospel Groups and Choirs to minister in music, along with a variety of Guest Speakers sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ and His gift of salvation.  From time to time we also have folks along to give their Testimony of what God has done in their lives. To end the evening, an enjoyable supper is served and all are encouraged to stay for a chat and a time of fellowship together.

The Open Door takes place on the second Saturday of each month from October through to April at 7.45pm in our Brownstown Hall (opposite EuroSpar). See our programme below for what’s coming up this season - if you’d like more information, see Bill Wharry or contact us.
